Sitting in the train, I am here watching the beautiful Western Ghats and the vast plains of India. I have been wondering all along that we have such a beautiful country that is so huge and we have not utilised even 10% of it. Is it because we are scared to live alone in the nature once we come to the city and get comfortable in easier things and the hustle bustle of life that anything apart from the city feels very remote to us?

When we can stay in huge mansions surrounded with beautiful greenery and farmland we choose to live in 1RK where it’s impossible to accommodate a 3rd person in the small tiny room. I might be in an extremely philosophical world thinking about all this. But, how long has it been since you spent time in peace, lazing around in the nature and not in a closed room?

How long has it been since you watched the stars without anyone saying it’s Monday, time is up, get up? How long has it been when you went on taking up the challenge of reading a fat novel in one go and finishing it straight in a day. How long has it been when you stared at the nature from the train windows and not get worried that you have to catch another bus or flight.

How long has it been since you lived like a child without any tension in the world? How long has it been since you were not stressed a single day and just did random unimportant things?

Why do we all keep telling that we need to go back to school or want to be kids again? How long has it been since you sat with your so-called friends who were once chaddi buddies, for hours and hours together chatting about mundane things in life without seeing what time is it?

Is it because of all these things that we have imposed upon ourselves?

What is life? Is it just getting up, going to office every day, trying to finish work in the same old deadline and fail to do so, when the deadlines are insane and literally impossible?

Is it to rush to office on a Monday morning in the last minute, when you have a throbbing headache from the last nights party and a hungry stomach.

Is it being late to work in the morning when 90% of the office is in the same state as you are and would have arrived 1 minute before you, yet stare at you for being late.

Is life waiting for a 11am/1pm/4pm/6pm break to have coffee or munch on snacks?

Is it waiting for your boss to go to the washroom or any other meeting so that you can finally have time to check your really important email which is a life changer?

Is it waiting for your colleagues to get up first so that you all can huddle up together and finally have some chill time?

Is life only about waiting for that Friday evening when you can go back home throw your things and get sloshed so that you can sleep the whole Saturday?

Is it thinking that this weekend you will surely read a book and clean the house, which turns out into a shopping trip to release the inbuilt stress from the week and again no rest or no cleaning?

Is life that when every time your dad or mom calls when you are at work in the day time and evenings with friends when you say you are really busy and later miss them on the weekends.

Is life when days pass into weeks, weeks pass into months and months pass into years and yet we just aren’t happy with our increasing salaries, bigger houses, better gadgets, bikes and cars. Just waiting for that weekend to spend all that you have earned and then the last week living like a beggar without any savings even though it’s not your first job?

Is life just going behind money and things so much so that we are ok to stress ourselves so much that we take up part time jobs too and not being happy with what we have.

Is life happiness and being contented? Or is it being rich and famous?
Can someone tell me what to do in life?

I always liked dressing up, also dressing everyone up around me. I also used to dress up my cousin brother when he was a kid in beautiful Indian ethnic wear. I know the whole talk about what’s life is extremely individual and yes, we need to think about it. That’s one of the main reasons I am here, what I am doing, as in Yes, I did leave my full-time job, and I’m penniless here trying to achieve something out of my passion.

For me, my definition of success are two extreme directions, one being satisfied and happy with whatever I’m doing every day and not sulking on how stressed I am. Also, a little part of me wants to become rich and famous like everyone else! What’s the shame in admitting the bitter truth of the world?

Are you guys thinking why such a philosophical post this time? I might be in this phase of figuring out things, also I love nature and water and everything close to the earth!

Fusion Queen Tips

As you all know my love towards fusion wear, here I’m bringing one such beautiful outfit where it’s extremely easy to wear and super easy to carry it off also.

So, Nikita and I decided to do shoot in sync, and initially could not find much in common, then we decided to just pick up a lehenga from our wardrobes and pair up with a black T-shirts!

So, all I have done is used a lehenga, and just worn it with a black T-shirt! Yes, it’s as simple as that, there is nothing hidden here! Also, I have added a lot of jewellery to make it look royal.

Accessorizing is the key to how anything looks on you. To be frank my t-shirt is very old and truly faded. Just by adding the maang tika, the jhumka and the pearl necklace made a huge difference!

WHAT I WORE :
  1. The Lehenga – Ajio.com
    It’s made up of light weight cotton-silk, as good as wearing any skirt
  2. T-shirt – Myntra.com
    It’s just a normal black cotton t-shirt (Mine is even faded)
  3. NeckPiece – Toniq Accessories
  4. Maang tika + Jhumka – Local fancy store in HSR, Bangalore.

Yeah, that’s it guys! Dressing up in a simple manner and portraying it beautifully is what I like, and I would love to do this my entire life with no regrets!

Maybe I would answer this is life for me!
